Today, Jessica and I taught a lesson to the fifth grade students about the months of the year. Most of the students knew most of the months of the year, so we reviewed them by writing them on the board and then saying them aloud together. Then we taught the students the months of the year song. They really enjoyed singing this song! After the song, we went over how to say the dates in English. Students are taught British English and their dates are written and said a bit differently that what we say in the United States. We went over both ways so that students would know the different ways that dates are written in the world. In order for students to practice saying the dates aloud, we created a birthday list on one of the classroom walls. We wrote each month of the year on a sheet of paper and taped them in order on the wall. Then we gave each student a piece of paper and they had to write their birthday on the card. Once everyone was finished, each student had to read their card and then place it in the correct spot.
